Charlton and Hull City advanced Monday into the FA Cup sixth round, each seeing out 2-1 wins during replays.
Simon Church had the game winner over Sheffield Wednesday for Charlton, a club from South London that isn’t so far removed from better days in the Premier League but now facing potential relegation into England’s third tier.
So, a quarterfinal berth in the FA Cup is big doings for the club (pictured above in celebration Monday). It also scuttled the chances of a mighty Sheffield derby, as the winner of Monday’s match has already been drawn into a quarterfinal meeting with Sheffield United.
Just a few more points will probably see Hull safely out of any relegation danger, ensuring another Premier League season at the KC Stadium. So, the Tigers have already accomplished something – although a quarterfinal FA Cup appearance is certainly something else Steve Bruce’s club can hang its hat on.
